BENEFITING: Amref Health Africa
EVENT DATE: Sep 18, 2014
As the new Executive Director of Amref Health Africa in the USA, I’ll be diving into the Hudson River as part of the Statue of Liberty Swim on Thursday, September 18, a 1.2 km swim around Liberty Island to help provide access to clean water for women and children in communities across Africa.
Yup, you got it – swimming in dirty water to raise funds for the clean stuff! While we in New York are spending millions to clean up the Hudson River, African communities do not have access to these kinds of funds.
So please, help me raise money for access to clean water and sanitation facilities for communities across Africa by donating here…. Thanks so much! (And yes I will be wearing a wet suit!)
